I took time off because I have been struggling with spiritual pride and wondered if the blog was contributing to it.
I am still not sure of the answer to that, but I do know that a month without blogging has resulted in much more attention to my personal journal and prayer time. And I have been more aware of my prayers being answered, which leaves me feeling humble and grateful indeed.
So, I am back, having fasted from blogging during Eastertide. Next year maybe I'll give it up for Lent instead, LOL.
(A lovely side effect of the blogfast is that I have been hanging out at your places. What luxury!)
One last time:
1. Have I done my daily spiritual practice?
Yes. I seem to be making a habit of getting on my knees a few times a day and it is wonderful. I think my knees are even getting used to it.
2. What unexpected opportunities has God put in my path since I last checked in?
A friend in crisis reached out to me and I spoke plainly to her about how God could (and would) help her cope with her situation. It was an amazing conversation.
3. Of the things I committed to doing, which have I done or not done since the last check in?
I did what I committed to doing.
4. What am I being called to do between now and the next time I check in?
I probably won't do this list again on the Big Dunk, but I think God is continuing to ask me to speak about him with people. Not complicate things too much, but just express as simply as possible:
Without God- Misery
With God- Joy
